“As a company we’re seeing steadily improving monthly results in post-GFC years, and most property data providers are
reporting fabulous auction clearance rates and improved home values across the board.”
“These are all wonderful signs for our market nationally.”
Mr White often references the link between rate movements and buyer sentiment. The company’s transactional results in
recent months reflect those of June to August 2008 when rates were at similar levels.
“Sentiment is key and we’re seeing purchasers spirits are picking up. We expect the RBA decision today won’t impact
those prospective buyers from engaging in the market.”
